this affair come to light? when this woman, jill kelley, a married tampa bay socialite, complained to the fbi that she was receiving harassing e-mails from an anonymous sender. she registered the complaint this past summer. the fbi investigated and in the process discovered the sender was paula broadwell. and that also broadwell had an affair with petraeus. the e-mails to kelley stemmed from broadwell's apparent jealousy of kelley's relationship with petraeus. there is no evidence that kelley had an affair with petraeus. the kelley family acknowledged that they were friendly with the petraeus family. by late october, under questioning from the fbi, both petraeus and broadwell had admitted to the affair. on november 6th, election day, the fbi notified the director of national intelligence, james clapper, of the affair. clapper advised petraeus to step down, and within days, petraeus did. question, is there more to this affair than meets the eye? pat buchanan. >> i don't think there's a great deal more than what we already know, john. a lot of people are attacking the fbi for investigating thos

. the investigation done by the fbi, but they determined there was no question of loyalty, no national security compromise. they stop. there is another aspect of this thing, suitability for conduct. you can be a patriot, but if you are habitually to excess, that, a problem with the access to classified material. the justice department with all that i don't know why they did it. >> margaret? >> these things are done clandestinely until they are not. love is fleeting, gmamiil isn't. we are addicted to e-mail and we put things in it we don't want to be seen, but we hold the cia director to a higher standard. but i wonder with our military and political figures, to -- if it is in somewhat to elevated now. divorce is soaring in the military. these deployments are hard on families. people are weak and we are stupid in the throes of a romantic affair. do we want to get rid of people like general petraeus when there is no national security breach? the person who should be fired is that fbi agent and all the people who let that go up the chain of command. >> what do you make of that, nina? >> i hope his
would have been aware of what the f.b.i. was doing and i was told no and that it was this person's understanding that holder quite specifically understood how important it was not to let word of this out. not to inform the white house, to keep it at the justice department within proper channels. so i was given a quite specific answer to the question congressman rogers posed but it's a question people are going to want more detail on and they'll want to have people say maybe even on the record there was no leak to the white house. >> rose: there's also this question: did the c.i.a. director petraeus not want to resign and then only decided that he should resign after it became public? >> that's a very interesting part of this story and, again, i want to be honest with your viewers, i don't know the answer. it is a fact that after he was informed that this investigation was going on he did not resign that he waited until he was confronted, in effect, by his nominal superior, the director of national intelligence james clapper who called anymore and informed him of the f.b.i. invest
